New book by Thomas Bachhuber ’71 combines career planning with spiritual aspects

TranSpirations: Guidance for the Head & Heart through Career and Beyond is the fourth book of Thomas Bachhuber ’71, Ed.D., of Wauconda, Illinois, and recently was published.

Bachhuber combines the insights of career/work experts with those of essential spiritual writers to provide substantive messages to address change in life. The book has been reviewed as “an incomparable career development and spiritual companion for anyone in a job, career or retirement transition.”

“For decades (Tom Bachhuber) has been helping people make their transitions in a life-giving way, moving beyond fear to faith on solid ground,” says Parker J. Palmer, founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. “The illustrations in this book are real and compelling, and the exercises he recommends are immediately helpful.”

Bachhuber has served as the director of the career development centers at the University of Maryland and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He also has been a consultant for several Fortune 500 companies. Currently, he is the president of the board and executive director of The Center for Life Transitions Inc.

Bachhuber received a degree in economics from Ripon College and a degree in education from the University of Virginia. His previous book are Directions: A Guide to Career Planning; When Your Son/Daughter Plans for the Future: A Guide for Parents; and The Best Graduate Business Schools.
